International Youth Arts Festival

Creative Youth organises and delivers the International Youth Arts Festival Kingston (IYAF) the leading youth arts festival in the UK, if not the World!  Launched in 2009 IYAF has become a ‘must see’ arts festival and often considered a precursor to Edinburgh Fringe.  Showcasing the best young talent nationally and internationally IYAF provides a platform where emerging young artists aged 5-26 years old can reveal and share their skills and artistic expression with local and visiting audiences.  Over the last 8 years the growth has been phenomenal; more than 30,000 young people have participated in delivering the festival as artists, project managers, interns, volunteers in Kingston Upon Thames.
Next year will be our 10th Festival and will run from the 6th to 15th July 2018. Applications to participate will open in November 2017. To be kept informed please join our mailing list here
